Paperback reads. We love them cheap. We love them dirty. We love to ask: why are white men the only ones with inner lives or three-dimensional personalities? Hosts Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden dig deep into the dollar bins of used bookstores and your grandmother’s storage unit, looking for pulp and sass. Dirt Cheap brings those long-lost stories to life, with a heavy dose of humor and a dash of schadenfreude. This season, we're reading Murder in the Glass Room, a Los Angeles noir novel starring Phil Norris, a misanthropic bookie-turned-detective who's bad at his job and obsessed with furniture.
It’s the poolside podcast you’ve been waiting for.

The first season of Dirt Cheap is dropping in just one week! We're reading Murder in the Glass Room, a Los Angeles noir novel starring a misanthropic bookie-turned-detective named Phil Norris. Phil's not very good at being a detective, but he sure is trying. Tune in for our first episode, dropping next Thursday, October 15th.

Great chemistry with a side of pulp
I love the pace and tone of each episode. I cannot wait to hear the other weird *bad stories they have to share with us!
My favorite thing about this show is how quickly I get lost in each episode, in each chapter. A great escape!
Amanda and Geoffrey are so charming!
Great for a laugh
I’m a huge fan of pulp fiction and this hits the spot. Lots of laughs and a good example of deconstructing a novel and the possibly how not to write a story. Characters with no context etc. So much fun to hear the banter while reading the story. I’m glad they aren’t grading my paper!
